Database of the space electromagnetic environment
The database of the space electromagnetic environment contains the plasma wave data observed by plasma wave receivers onboard satellites. They provide the enormous information on the energy/momentum transfer processes, which affect the electromagnetic environments in collisionless space plasmas. The open data mainly consist of the plasma wave spectra observed by the Geotail spacecraft. They cover the whole observation period of the Geotail spacecraft since its launch of 1992.
Atmospheric radar observation data
The MU radar has been observing the earth's atmosphere for over 20 years as the largest atmospheric radar in Asian region. This database provides observational data at mid-latitude (35N) from the ground up to the upper atmosphere, or forest, atmosphere and space, obtained by the MU radar and related atmospheric measurement at Shigaraki, Koka, Japan. The data were authorized by WDS(World Data System) March 2016.
Equatorial atmosphere observation data
Observation data obtained by Coupling Processes in the Equatorial Atmosphere (CPEA) project have been opened. They include the atmospheric data in the troposphere and lower stratosphere and irregularity data in the ionospheric E- and F-regions observed with the Equatorial Atmosphere Radar (EAR). The data were authorized by WDS(World Data System) March 2016.
Global Atmospheric Observation Data
We are providing global meteorological data in a NetCDF format that is self descriptive and network transparent. The datasets on this server are Japanese 55-year Reanalysis (JRA-55), ECMWF 40 Year Re-analysis (ERA-40), NCEP Reanalysis, and JMA GPV data provided by Japan Meteorological Business Support Center.
Wood Diversity Database
Standard wood collections (KYOw), Japanese hardwoods, lexicon of IAWA wood anatomy (translation JP-EN), scientific names etc. KYOw provides a full list of sample collections and corresponding preparations for microscopy maintained at Xylarium. Anatomical description and micrographs of more than 400 Japanese hardwoods are retrievable from hardwood database.
EST Database for Useful Plants
In this database, the expressed sequence tags (ESTs) of useful plants including medicinal and biomass plants are deposited. Homology search against these ESTs can be performed using BLAST program. You can also search gene annotations using a keyword.
Basidiomycetes Genetic Resource Data Base
In this database, you can search bibliographic data of dried fruiting bodies of wood-rotting Basidiomycetes collected from 1920’s and genetic data of stock cultures in RISH.
Auroral images
This database includes pseudo-color all-sky images of aurora acquired at the South Pole Station in Antarctica. This project has been carried out in collaboration with National Institute of Polar Research, National Science Foundation and Siena College.
Cloud-top height product estimated by geostationary satellite
Database of cloud-top height and optical thickness estimated by using 2-dimensional look-up tables as a function of geostationary satellite split-window measurements at infrared wavelengths.
Meteorological data in the industrial plantation of Acacia mangium in the Sumatera island of Indonesia
Research Institute for Sustainable Humanosphere (RISH) conducts meteorological observation in the industrial plantation of Acacia mangium in the Sumatera island of Indonesia to investigate meteorological environment of the plantation, influences of meteorological conditions on vegetation and interaction between the atmosphere and forest. We have eight observation points and measure rainfall, temperature and humidity. The temporal intervals of data include in the present database are 10 minutes and an hour.
